Omar Souleyman - "Wenu Wenu"

New MusictheneedledropComment

Syrian pop musician Omar Souleyman has shared a lyric video for the zany but substantial title track from his upcoming LP Wenu Wenu. The song has lively, exotic production courtesy of Four Tet, and Souleyman delivers a strong, spirited vocal performance that manages to be thoroughly engaging despite the repetitive lyrics. So far, the outlook for the album sure is promising.

Wenu Wenu is due out October 22nd via Ribbon Music.
